USGBC is full of troublemakers, and that is a great thing.
Throughout this year’s Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in San Francisco, attendees were empowered to make their voices heard. Hundreds lined up to send postcards to their elected representatives. Each postcard carried an important message that extolled the power of the Greenbuild conference, the green building industry and the sustainability movement. This message will help to educate members of Congress, governors, state officials and local leaders on the impact of the green building industry in their communities. By filling out a postcard, each individual received his or her official USGBC troublemaker badge. By Greenbuild’s close, these pink ribbons were everywhere. It was truly inspiring to see the passion within our community and individuals’ willingness to share personal stories of green building success.
